The Captain1 we fee! certain, would not harm a hair of hi Mi. One more feature in our neighhoCa rplic must be ttended lo and wo are don. In inswer to our etinrge that there wce many Oeinecrnts in the order he admit it but ay ihat llioy uro just beginning to aee that they were gulled, and arc quietly disengaging themealvta from this " political gull trap '' Mow what most supremely ridiculou plea thhl is! How lung, we ask, will it take a Democrat to find out that be has been gull ed! To ot r certain knowledge iho Untitle commenced on the Know Nothing some mouth before the lait election, and gave what he said were true expositions of the order. Notwilhatanding these expoeitioiis the order grew and waxed txceedingly pow erful in a very ahort time, la It poesible that these Democrat who have been fooled will believe an "old Whig leader" oener than (he edi(orof a Democratic paper. Bu .ii. ppnsp, fur llio sake of lha argument, thut they were deceived in joining the Order,how long won Id it take them to find it out! Not more than one or two meetings, we should iHildh) yet last fall they hung on resolutely u Mil n'ti r the election. How they stand now for numbers we are notable to say, ami presume we will never know except as (heir in; n. in i.l force is revealed at the ballot box on ome future election day. Of one thing, however, we are certain, that if we wore ; member of the order we would not thank the j editor of the Oatflte, or any one clae for saying that it took u two, three, or ix month, n th esse might be to find out the ! principles and designs of the order. 07"A friend ha ;ust hinded us a copy of ; t lie last Enterprite (ours was unaccountably nut received,) in which wc find no Ices than two column of editorial directed at our hum 1 ble self, in reference lo our notice of his lot ' fery advertisements.

The brilliailt promise of this mini a' j few year ago was B matter of just pride to ' this community. His and fate should bo a I warning to those following in his wake, and should arouse every philanthropist and well-' wisher of his race to renewed exertions in 1 eradicating (his giant evil from our midst.1 The fate ol this victim is only that of scores of others in our immediate midst some of them of eijual ly fluttering prospects ofu use ful and distinguished career. If theso les sons and admontnons continue Unheeded, we know not what Warning is necessary to se cure uttentiotj to the subjeot. The writer alluded to, says: "N.

Dispatch: "The whole commerce of ihe world turns' upon th product of slave labor. What would commerce do without cotton, sugar, tobaccg, 1 coffee, rice, and naval atores! All these ore1 product of slave labor. It i a aettled fact dial Iron labor cannot produce them in suffi cient quantity '" upply the demands of man kind. It has been said that one l'reo laborer; is equal to five slave. If thia be so, why has1 not free labor been employed lh the produC-l lion of the above stipdes! It has been at-' te npted, lu every casj in which it has boon 1 introduced, has failed. The world follows' its interests, and il l'reo labor was moro val uable than slave, it would be employed at! this moment in tho United States, Cuba, and : Brazil, which are all open to free lubor. And herein note the greater liberality and self reliant atangth or the slave over the free State. ' The former freely permit the Northern cap ' italial t0 eoiiic in with his free labor and com pete with slave labor. The latter paas laws prohibiting ihe Southern capitalist from com ing in with hi alavea to compete with North ern labor. Their prohibitory lawa are pas sedv because thoy arc afraid of slave compe tition; whereas the Honih, in the lace of the pretence which ha bee'h handed dewn from Wilberforce to these times, that one white laborer e.,unl in value to five slaves, throws her door wide epen and invitee tho free labor to walk in and try its hand, and it dare not come.

It will suffice to say that by the laslinalla a letter was received from Pari by an Individual in thir city Wo have been permitted to publish a translation of a portion of ibis correspon dence. "The Emperor haa foreaeea all the calam ities and reverie of Hvatopl ever aince tha Allied army sal down before the city.

On the arrivrl of thi armada in the Crimea, the Emperor will leave Paris, and appear in person before Sebastopol. A cour na main, upon a gigan tic scale, will be attempted. Sebastopol will fall. The elated army, flushed with tho feat, will sweep over the Crimea and occupy the 1st limn .f Perekop. Alter a campaign which will endure a fortnight, Louis Napol eon will return to Paris, where the sndden nea of hi departure and the promptness uf his return will tins' all conspiracies unpre pared for development, and where the glory of his vi ctory will scatter all future treason lo the wind., "Such is the campaign cuntcmplaUd by Louis Napoleon.

A note will be sent to the King of Prussia, demanding free pussage for ihe French troops through hi dominion, which, if refused, will advance to the Rhine." From the O. S. Journal. Popular Sovereignty. The Fourth of M,ircb has passed: The long to bo remembered Congres of compact breakers and constituent betrsyers had dis persed ; "pnpulur sovereignly" has worked ve ry differently in the case of most of ita mem-be-s, from their own fond anticipations, and "the places that have once known them will know thc-n no more forever.". When the late Congress assembled, it found the coun try in peace snd quietness; the murmur uf sectiunal discoisii wero hushed. Before it cIubpiI its first session, by the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and the throwing open to Slavery all the territories of the Union, it had destroyed all luture confidence between tho Free and the Slave States, and stirred up, through the mosses ol the people of tho Free Slates, a deep seated and burnine sense of the wrobo done them, which, in the late elections, lound some venl on the heads ol the traitor representatives of the Norlh. This feeling will continue to agitate the Unicn until the territory he reitored to free do r, which, by an infamous fri ud, bus been exposed to the chui ces of Slavery. The insulting taunts o.' the minion of Douglas and the Administration to go and fight the ' black plague," now trying to spread ilsell over the fair territory of Kan zas, alter they themselves have invited it to walk in on equal terms with freedom, w ill not be forgotten. Their sincerity will now be soon ttstrd, by ascertaining If they are wil ling to support any measure for the protec tion of their own bunding, " popular sover eignty," and the prevention of citizens of Missouri pouring Illegal voters in'o the Ter ritory, for the purpose of controlling and overawing the bona tide squatters. The frauds committed in the election uf General Whitfield, the late Delegate, are notorious und also the preparations now making by the Atchison faction of pipe-layers in Missouri, lo import enough votes Id control the charac ter ol the Legislature (o be elected on the 13th of March, notwithstanding the efforts of Gov. Reedcr to protect the polls. Vet not a whisper is raised against the outrage hy Ihe Douglas "populur sovereignly" organs in the Free Stales. Congress adjourned without looking into the matter; and while perhaps it was too much to expect from a set of Representatives so universally condemned, that they would retrace their steps, and, in obedience to the clearly exprpssed popular will, nr.SToiiE the Slavery prohibition thut hud been repci led, honesty at least required that they should puss some law that would give "popular sovereignty" fair play in Kanzus, und punish the residents of Missouri who, by illegal vo ting, were interfering with the rights uf Iho bona lido squatter. Neither the President nor S. Arnold Douglas have shuwn any dispo sition to move iu the matter; on the contrary it is well known that Gov. Reedcr is daily denounced in Missouri by tha Atchiaon pa pers us an Abolitionist, because he protests u u i list such interference; und efforts are ma king to have him removed, simply because, like muny an Ohio Nebruskujtte, he wus greon enough to believe Douglus meant what he said, when he talked ubout "popular sover eignty." The plan of Ibe pro-slavery party is, evi dently, by Iraiul, to geiconlrol of the first Lo gislaiure of Kanzas legalize Slavery, and then raise the cry , with their doughface allies in the free Slates, lhat ice wins acuui'escs!

Kunzus cuat near 3000 votes, while Nebraska polled but 1000 another proof of the large importation of Mis s xirian. Now it is certain that a large majority gf the Congressmen just elected by the people, will nut be disposed lo tolerate such a course of proceedings; and thuugh ihe hold- ivcr Sen ators, in defiance of ihe expressed will ut their curilituenls, may relusc to o'tey insti uc tions, iik1?

If the' President, under the behests of the slave power, should veto such measure, demanded, j as it will he by the emi-nesl men of (II parties in the country, it will be easy to insert in the general appropriation bill, and stick by it. tch a law would tend, in sumo degree, to restrain tho aggression of the slave power, by preventing Missonri from governing Kan sas, until at the next Presidential election, the prep! gt fair sweep at tba po-vers that be; -and then the lull sway of Ireeaoes will ba re-eatabKshed by lha 'popular sovereignty" I uf tha whole nat on.

BARNESVILLE, March 10th, 1855. Mr. Editor: I noticed in your last paper t an article, which I suppose to be fiom your pen, where io you touch up tha Delegate i from Belmont in no alow manner, and re- i quest him 'o give hi reasons for his appa-i rently unwarrantable speech in th Conven-j tion at Columbus. ' i Believing you to be a sincere friend to th i Temperance cause, and that your remark I were the result of kind intentions I beg loave 1 1 to present you seriatim, my reasons for the aforcaaid speech. But before I commence allow me to state i that the gratuitous assumptions, lhat I am an i ullraist and that my cirele is narrow and con- I traded, have an air about them, that does i not very well suit the conductor of so rspec- table and worthy a paper, as I have always ' , understood the Chronicle lo be, j But the reasons. First the n before the 1 1 present law was passed, we had in this place , a borough law which prevented the sale of i spirituous or malt liquors, in any quantity other than for Medical purposes and under the operation of that law we were better off j than we ure now for by it the sale of intoxi I eating or mall liquors was entirely prohibi ted while under the present law, sle beer and wine are sold to any and everybody. std. Before the passage of thi law on di- vision (I am a son of I empernce, one of the first thai joined in this place.) our division, I h suy numbered about 250 memb 'rg, at the i present time we number 55. 3d. The opening cf be !r and wineshops, has been the cause of this in a great meas ure, and a number of our formar sonj of tem perance are or havo been engaged in selling j beer and wine, not to speak of those who have been patronizing them, (but you call that back sliding.) 4th. Before I wa elected, we teok' the ' sense of the division upon the practical ef facta of the present law, and my remarks iu ' the Convention were based upon (hat acUon ol'the Division. 6th. The difficulty of prosecuting this luw. We have now two lh jail in your town from tbia Tp. and one 'was (as I have been in-! formed) prosecuted by a man to whom he Would not sell, and the other by the wife of j the Unfortunate inebriate who wrs maddened : by the injurious effects of ardent spirits upon her husband 6th. The law allows any one to sell to "temperate men, which is worse than the ' old license systum (or it is snly temperate men who can become drunkards. 7th. You confess your self that manv n di vision has been broken up and charters re lumed, Is nol this backsliding! I have a good many more reason but for ' fear nf trespassing too much on your time and columns, I here close and shall try to j give you a revv moro in u short (imn. Yours truly, "THE DELEGATE," March 3rd, 1855. MR. EDITOR.— You are perhaps nwaie, that there is, neur Burnesville, an anti-tobacco Society, which is composed chiefly of reformed tobacco chew-1 ers und smokeis. Tho aOciety met lor the first timo about a year ago, and through ill has been bitterly oppi sed by those who are steeped iu the poison of the evil though time sanctioned custom ; yet ;t is slowly progress-! ing. Labor, in a good cause is always re -1 wurded either directly or indirectly. Expo-1 rience has shown to us the benefit of shun- j ning the ioathome weet , unJ wu feel bound to make use of all moral means to induce oth ers to forsake the worse thun useless practice of using tobacco as a loxu.y. Viewing the matter in ibis light the Society has instructed Rsj to forward to you a copy of the most im portant parts of our Constitution and by laws; which, though imperfect, we hope you will ! give them room in your columns, believing as we do that your love for the promotion of needful reform will induce you to publish than for the benefit of thosa w ho read your paper, we humbly avail ourselves uf the op portunity to have them inserted in your col umns.

Editor of the Chronicle, Esteemed Friend: Wishing to know the tinieol the meeting f the board of School Examiners, and not jeing able to find the time published as it jsed to be in (he County papers, I have con tiudad to write a few lines to theo (o euc ju roge the board to continue (he notice ol (heir meetings. And while I am writing there is another subject on which I will say a few Words. Isce ia last week's Ohronkie an extract from the "Buffalo Democracy" headed "prop er rendering of Scripture," which is taken without comment, and 1 suppose meets the appnval of the editor of ihe Chronicle, which I am sorry to think. The extract consists ol u commendation of part uf a let ter of Kossuth's to the society of friends, wherein he makes a lame and very illogical attempt to prove that wur is in accordance with Christianity us set forth in the scripture, and quoting us happy and pertinont a doubt ful rendering of the following: "Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace, ood will toward men." Luke, 11, 14. Koesuth preferring the following version: G iory to God in the highest, and peace on earth lo good willing nien." N ow udinitting Ihe lutter version (o be correct,! ee nothing in it to support the curnul warlure which. Kossuth wishes to uphold, us the anijels wero evidently proclaiming the nature of Christ's Mission en Eirth, which aria in leed peace lo all good willing men-but ever ha been and. ever will be on Ii vil Willing or Evil doing but not the war Characterized aa with "("onlused noise and garments rolled in blood" bu( n silent s a ching war. carried oil 1 in (he hearts of Men and w ith a spirit sharper than a Iwo-edged S.vord iSic. Kossuth has bec.i quite as unbippy iu ihe conclusions lip has seen lit to draw from some other passages. He oppears to have taken liicrully the following from Christ's sermon on the mount "I come not to send peace hut a sword," Sic; which if bo con strued must render the appellation of the Prince of Peace as applied to Him strangely inappropriate. Yt his whole course on earth and nil the teachings ol his precepts are strictly in accordance with "With peace an earth, and good will to men," whether friends or foes. Kuasuth has made a bold attempt to nn chris'.ianize the society of Friend. Yet were his doctrines carried out, half the na tions of Christendom must form companies of Knights-Errunts lo redress the wrongs of jibe re. I wus sorry to see any thing like commen ting an attempt to discourage peace princi ples, at a time especially when the wur spir it is so rife in the land and believing too aa I do that tbatspirit of ambition which is in flamed and fostered by war: is one which will endanger the permanency of this government H. Gift EuTIKVBteB. Last week tho Police of New York made a descent upon an estab lishment in thet city known as Dashall Si Cu.'s ' National Enterprise Office." They look possession of a largo number of ticket and other propeity connected with the con cern. It is said that thi concern has swin dled the green and gullible portion of the public out of about $30,000. The 'thing hdi. an existence only in name, as moU of those concerns have. We do not pity those who huve been tskB in. If any one ii jreen enough to be "tuken in" by such mi frable nuisance as "Gift Elite rpries," "Gift Lotteries,'" and "Ci i ft Humbugs," after su nany repeated exposures by the press, we ; include that an experiment of tho kind is he only school in which they will learn irudjnr.e.
